What to do? Grace’s Quilt

005 (610x392)_wmI won this fabric (15 fat quarters) almost 2 years ago in a challenge and my intent was to make a quilt for my granddaughter for her 2nd birthday. She is now 3 and I hope to have it done for her 4th birthday at the end of the year.

I had this pattern in mind, using 2 1/2 in squares and 6 1/2 x 2 1/2 rectangles:

I wasn’t so sure about the above so I tried this:DSCN3524 (1024x768)_wm

Still not happy, I did this:

DSCN3526 (768x1024)_wmI like this last one the best, but it will require a solid fabric and more planning on how I am going to piece it. Good thing I have until December to finish it.

What layout do you like the best?

Enjoy the Journey, Jackie

    I like the first one. Something about all those pretty squares. My second pick is the last option. I know whichever you choose, it will be beautiful and Grace will love it!

      Thank you Sandi for the kind words. The last option is still on my design wall and I am finishing up another project so who knows what will strike me as a possibility next.

  • Tanesha (Crafty Garden Mom)

    Very pretty fabrics! I like the 3rd option best.

  • Diane Rincon

    Definitely the third one, Jackie.

      Thanks, I have had lot of suggestions on Threadbias and Google + that I think I will also be looking at other options.
